Malicious Mischief Suspect In Custody- Officers Need Help Identifying Crimes- PAPD 2022-4848
Since yesterday PenCom has received at least 11 calls where residents report graffiti damage from “Sharpie” pens. If you have experienced damage to your house, car or property from a marking pen in the last 48 hours you can go to the PAPD webpage and complete an online report and reference the above case number. Depending on the surface the pen may have caused permanent damage. Officers want to identify all the events and victims to ensure the potential for restitution should the defendant be convicted. Marking the property of another with a permanent pen is the crime of Malicious Mischief.
Officers earlier today arrested an individual they believe is responsible for the rash of incidents. Please call 360 452 4545 (ex1) if you want to talk with an officer.
